Cigarette Lighter Advertising

Cigarette Lighter Ads - A-F

Aside from their general interest, lighter advertising can help pinpoint when a specific model of lighter was being sold. The goal is to continually expand the library of advertising to provide reference material and a view of what was widely available through time.

You can help!     Submit a new or better version of an ad.

If you have a different or better quality ad than is presented here, please feel free to share it with us. A high quality scan (300 DPI for large ads; 600 DPI for small ads) would be welcomed and can be included here. For more information about this, please see the SUBMISSIONS PAGE. At this time no ads are being accepted for anything newer than 1989... unless... it is something of particular interest.

Lighter Ads By Brand

The order of ads for a given year is no reflection of how early or late they may have appeared in that year - it is simply the order in which they were processed.

SOURCES: Both the Cigarette Lighter Ads and the Documentation share some commond sources. The biggest single source is eBay where various full size original ads are for sale and often good, smaller size scans of these are a part of the item description - these are frequently used here. Additionally, I scan ads from periodicals I have as well as from purchased catalogs. There are also some images from different books: Collecting Cigarette Lighters and Collecting Cigarette Lighters Volume II by Neil S. Wood and Collector's Guide To Cigarette Lighters Book 2 by James Flanagan have also provided some images as well as The Evans Book by Larry Clayton. As time passes I expect more images to be provided by other third parties.
